Good question and does anyone really know for sure? What I can say from observation is: houses are staying on the market a little longer and there are more price reductions and fewer multiple offers. The regional RMLS stats for September in the tri-county area also indicate the market is slowing down. The inventory levels are higher than they were in 2017, and the average time a house stays on the market is longer, but it is still a seller’s market. Even though the interest rates are still really great they are getting higher. All of this makes it a little easier if you’re trying to buy a house and in most cases, it will take longer to sell your house.
